cmiVFX just released a brilliant advanced video that covers snow simulations in Houdini. Our mentor, Mehdi Salehi, reveals a genius new technique in Houdini that has never been seen before anywhere else! Are you curious about solvers and micro-solvers in Houdini? Have you ever thought about creating new simulations in Houdini using your own custom network? If you're a Houdini user or you're interested in unique new VFX techniques, you absolutely have to see this advanced lesson. We'll be creating a snow simulation using different solvers and micro-solvers and we'll develop our own custom network. We'll also use VEX script to control the simulation, and you'll learn about rendering and surfacing the simulated particles using different methods and tools like VDB nodes. This lesson offers a new exclusive effect technique for the first time, which is recommended to all professional Houdini users.
How can we approach a snow simulation? In this chapter you'll learn the basics of creating a simulation and you'll see what you need to know before you continue.
Using our knowledge from the previous lesson, we'll start creating the simulation network. In this chapter you'll get a solid idea for what it takes to simulate snow.
We'll complete the network using various micro-solvers. We'll also be testing the network for different collision behaviors.
How do we render the simulated particles? We'll asnwer this question by examining different methods like VDB tools for rendering.
